Starring in a Commercial

Heady times people.

It turned out that I definitely did get that advert and it was for the National Lottery, or more accurately it was for scratch there goes my principles on encouraging poor people to gamble but what the hell...


Needless to say, this was a massive breakthrough and a big step forward in my career. The filming was done on Tuesday at bloody Pinewood Studios, next to the set (admittedly, it was burnt down) for James Bond and it was so very amazing, I really don't have the words! It wasn't being ferried around in a golf cart from the dressing room to the set (which was very cool), or the great people I got to meet (who treated me so well), or the fact that it pays good but just being in front of those cameras, being an actor and a total corporate, sell-out, acting whore!

I can't wait until it's on TV and hopefully, I'll be able to post it on here for all to see. The lack of posts is down to being in Oxford on tour, with a show called Dreams Come Out To Play but more on that later...


  1. You're only a sellout if you believe in what you're whoring.

    Keep it real, brother. :)

  2. The shame...the shame...

    Oh well, at least I'll know exactly what four-letter word to shout at the screen every time your gurning mug appears. ;-)

  3. Nice one mate, Is your tour hitting Hood Town?

    Selling out is good.

  4. Dirty sell-out media whore slut!!! *finger slaps tongue* :-p xxx

  5. Cool. Wish you could post the commercial on You Tube, but that probably violates some copyright law.

  6. you sold out for money? oh well. attorneys do it everyday. you do what you gotta do.

  7. Daniel, you're humble enough to admit it, and I'm sure you'll be a hit. Someday, you'll be able to pick and choose to do the stuff that will matter. Until then, the banal will have to do. Plug your nose and dive in!

    Congrats! You've worked hard and paid your dues.
